Lovely foundation -goes on like a dream: not too runny nor too thick. I blend with my fingers to get a soft dewy look. It's got lovely light-reflecting qualities (although I end up with slightly sparkly hands, it isn't at all as obvious on my face!) which, for me, means I use it much more as an evening foundation -when it is super flattering. Good coverage, evens out my skintone pretty well (very easily buildable depending on the amount of cover you want) -and hides uneven skintone and diminishes scarring/dark areas from eczema/spots. The finish isn't too matt or too greasy on my oily t-zone and sits really well on my dry areas without caking or flaking. Super comfortable on my sensitive skin -I don't wear it all the time but it has never made me break out in either spots or eczema. My skin looks lovely & luminous when I'm wearing it, plus it feels gorgeous on; quite light & comfortable. Very gentle scent, not overpowering at all. Really feels like a lovely luxury to put on. It lasts pretty well, better than many foundations I have tried. You don't need loads to get good coverage. I do re-apply to keep the coverage & freshness after a long day or if I get very warm, but on the while I am really happy with the staying power. I apply a little light pressed powder on the top which helps. As for the packaging, it's very attractive -all matt glass & a black top. The pump dispenses a perfect amount each time. It has a handy twist bit where you click it to one side so it won't push down, which has never failed & accidentally pumped expensive foundation onto the contents on my make-up bag. This also means there is no fiddly lid, which I like. Considering how I'm always chucking said bag around, I'm impressed with how robust it is. I'd buy this again -it'd be a big treat for me at 22.50 but I do find mac stuff lasts well, so combined with the quality of the product, it's a good buy.
